I was surprised by the heat as I wandered out this lunchtime. It appears we have anther short summer this week. Hot tomorrow then temperatures descending lower and lower until we reach the ice age of winter again, probably next Monday! I was off to the church for a discussion on outreach, with lunch provided to ensure people turned up, and a good time it was at that. Naturally I talked to much and said too little but what do you expect? This is my family heritage! Some years ago when researching the family line I was in contact with someone somewhere in Aussiland, in our conversations by email, passed on to others over there, I mentioned my dad and aunt disagreeing over the date of their mums death. I pointed out one said it was before the end of the war, the other claiming it was afterwards. Both, following family tradition were determined they were correct! A third Aussie chimed in after this saying "We are related, all my bloody lot are like that!"
For that reason I never go to Australia!
So the Cameron era has ended finally. 'Good bye' is all I can say to the worst PM this nation has ever had, and we have had some dumbo's right enough. 'Don't slam the door as you slink out' is another. He leaves for several reasons but money making is one of them clearly, just sitting on the back benches supporting the present PM who has made it clear his 'Posh Boys' policy was not right and she is working hard to eradicate almost all he has done is another good reason for him to head for the money. An ex-PM sitting on backbenches is in a difficult position, anything he says will be taken as support or opposition of the present PM, and as her policies are very different from his, in word if not yet in deed, then he cannot really say much at any time.
In my view he is not much of a loss, Osborne may go next although they do not want by-elections at this time, his job is only on the backbenches and never will Theresa May the present PM allow him back! How different it would have been if they had just gone six years ago....
'Road works today' said the sign.
